Whereas neurofibroma is a fairly common soft tissue tumor, solitary intraosseous neurofibroma is a very rare type of bone tumor, and there relatively few cases have been reported worldwide, which were localized to the maxilla and mandible. We experienced a solitary intraosseous neurofibroma and treated it by curettage and bone graft through trochanter osteotomy of the femur. We report a rare case of solitary intraosseous neurofibroma and provide a review of reported cases.
